Nazareth House, Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales

A Nazareth House was opened at Wrexham, replacing the one at Llanystumdwy which had been home to 12 babies and 18 old people. The new premises could accommodate 80 of the elderly, together with 20 single mothers and their babies. Many adoption placements were made from the home.

The Nazareth House was closed in the early 2000s. The property is now occupied by an independently run care home for the elderly.
